Why should you see a rehabilitation physician?

The rehabilitation physician will make an accurate diagnosis, calculate the physical and emotional barriers to recovery and develop a treatment and rehabilitation plan to optimize your performance. Most musculoskeletal conditions do not require surgery, but if surgery is required, the rehabilitation physician can determine the type and timing of the surgery required and make the appropriate referral to the best surgeon to perform the surgery necessary.
